If that's an octagonal barrel then it could be a Winchester Model 1890. If that's a round barrel then I'd guess a Winchester Model 1906.

That is what I would buy. Looks like the best bang for the buck to me.

Winchester Model 1906 is as good as guess as any, but it's hard to know without rebuilding it. all markings are removed, even from internals. there are a differences from the 1906 experts ive seen next too it.

Grips for Walther PPK/S

A few weeks ago I bought a Walther PPK/S and really like the way this little pop gun shoots. But, I do not like the feel of the plastic grips. Does anyone know a source for "bolt-on" grips of either polymer, hard rubber or even wood for this little piece?


TIA

I know, all you guys are just too cool for all that safety shit, but let's not try to promote the the image of an irresponsible gun owner, shall we?

Hopefully the pic was just staged, in which case, nevermind.

Hammer mounted and articulated so that as the hammer rotates, the firing pin actually travels pretty much straight, guided by the frame opening, to the primer during that last fraction of an inch. Common on many S&W revolvers, all of mine except the Mod. 17 (.22 rimfire) have the firing pins in the hammer.
'Everyone' used to build that way, some got away from it and used a transfer bar and frame mounted pin (think Ruger SA about 1972) to allow safe carry with a cartridge under the hammer. Somewhere around 100 years ago, S&W took the other route, using a 'hammer block' which retracts upon pulling the trigger to allow safe carry of 6 rounds. The old advertising used to boast 'Hammer the hammer' and show that you could safely hit the hammer of a loaded revolver and it would not fire.
